Program #20071RJ
5 Days | 4 Nights
EasyFor people looking to exercise their minds more than their bodies. There’s minimal walking and not too many stairs.
ModerateThese programs get you on your feet and include activities such as walking up to a mile in a day through a city and standing in a museum for a few hours.
ActiveFor people who enjoy walking as much as two miles a day, perhaps to explore historic neighborhoods or a nature trail.
Moderately ChallengingFor hardy explorers who enjoy a good physical challenge, spending most of their days on the go.
ChallengingGet ready to keep up with our highest-energy group. These demanding — and rewarding — programs are for seasoned outdoor enthusiasts.

This rather new program in Layfayette, LA is really fun! Learning to do the Cajun dances , the 2-step, the waltz, and the Zydeco steps was fun with an excellent intstructor. Then we went to the restaurant/dance halls like Randol's and Prejean's to experience the great food and put our dancing knowledge into practice. We certainly "passed a good time" in Lafayette and learned to take part in the "joie de vivre" that permeates this part of the country. Y'all should come on down and try it!!

My husband and I love to dance and love to take Road Scholar programs. This is the most fun we have ever had on a program: great dance lessons, multiple opportunities to go dancing, wonderful music, delicious food, and the friendliest natives we have encountered anywhere. Not only will I recommend this program to others, but we hope to take it ourselves again soon.
